Lets stop off at a quick one she said on the way from Templeborough trig.... Quick was the understatement of the year! Tricky. If the path on the map run the direction is said it did it would still be hard to spot in the dark and covered in brambles. A local pointed me the n right direction (after asking a neighbour and coming back to find me, who had been searching for 30 minutes in the dark! haha. A fun day between this one in the dark and Templeborough that has a story itself) no views as such but fun day made up for it.

Had a bit of a nightmare with this one. Parked on Little Common Lane beside school / adjacent to the entrance of a play area. For some reason I struggled to reconcile what I could see on the ground with what was on my map. So, I headed SE across the common following the perimeter of the school then behind the houses until I reached Poucher St. Then I knew I'd missed it so back the way I came only to find it staring me in the face !! This one sits tight up against someone's fence amongst the bushes on the NE corner of the housing estate. Would probably be easier to spot in the winter months. In good order with original cap and raised lettering. Paintwork starting to look a little tatty. FB faces SE. Views are very limited due to houses and vegetation. I then headed N to Green Lane and down to Droppingwell Rd for a thoroughly confusing amble through Barber Wood. Eventually stumbled across the TPT and followed this across the golf course before taking the PROW that drops down beside the driving range to Millmoor Juniors FC. After a short walk S along Droppingwell Rd I took Dukes Lane back across the common to Little Common Lane. Just one of those days today - only when at the trigpoint and and the clubhouse of Park Grange Golf Club did I truly know where I was !!

I had noticed that there were plenty of pillars close to the roads North of Sheffield sometime ago, so I decided it was about time to tackle them. Awake early, so didn't need the alarm, and in Sheffield by rail on a Derbyshire Wayfarer ticket by 8.20. Clear skies and brilliant sunshine had given way to heavy cloud as I headed North. Once out of the confusion of main roads in the city centre progress got better. Low gears engaged for the first time in the day on the ascent to Hill Top. Soon located pillar by garden fence behind bush from public access area.

Sixth and final one of the day on a 15+ miler. Tough clog up West Hill after the previous five. Access from Poucher Street a doddle (thanks ocean soul). Hidden in the far right hand corner of the field with vegetation begining to hide it. Sits quite high. Flush bracket faces east. Decent views W & NW. NCOF!
